Is it common for hair to be thinner after recent miscarriage? It's a lot thinner than it was before pregnancy. Will it thicken up again?

Thinning Hair: I am sorry to hear about your loss. The more estrogen in your body during pregnancy can give you very luxuriant hair and you shed less. But after a miscarriage the hormone levels can drop back to normal, and the hair that was on hold goes from growth to resting state and then will shed. This shedding can be quite noticeable for at least a 3-4 months after the miscarriage then slow. ...Read more

Will my thinning hair since miscarriage go back to normal? Is there anything I can do to slow down the thinning hair, miscarriage and losing hair!

Will my thinning hair since miscarriage go back to normal? Is there anything I can do to slow down the thinning hair, miscarriage and losing hair!

Telogen effluvium: The most likely cause of your hair loss is this reversible condition. Essentially, the hair follicles, which continually grow and fall out, become synchronized so that large amounts of hair fall out at the same time. Eventually, these follicles should revert to random cycles and your hair will return to its usual thickness. Otherwise, get your thyroid and testosterone levels checked. ...Read more

Will zinc and selenium help with my thinning hair since miscarriage 7 weeks ago? It's making me so depressed and I want my hair back :- (

Won't hurt: The drop in hormonal levels after a pregnancy ends frequently leads to hair loss. This does reverse over time but be sure you do not also have a thyroid problem which can effect the hair. The vitamins and dietary protein may help some but, unfortunately, it does take time. Hope you are feeling better fast. The loss of a baby is hard. ...Read more

Experiencing hair loss in shower & brushing. Hairs have whitish wisp on ends. Scalp itchy w/white flakes. Had spontaneous miscarriage 3 mos. Ago. Help?

Experiencing hair loss in shower & brushing. Hairs have whitish wisp on ends. Scalp itchy w/white flakes. Had spontaneous miscarriage 3 mos. Ago. Help?

Maybe related issues: There are sudden hormonal shifts w/miscarriage. Those shifts put many of the normally growing hairs on scalp into a resting phase. At the end of 3-4 months of this resting phase, hairs shed. Many of them should grow back unless there are other underlying health issues. If there was a significant blood loss w/miscarriage, hair loss could also happen. Flakes are most likely seborrheic dermatitis. ...Read more

Had miscarriage 10 mos ago, started noticing some hair loss a few months after and still now. Connection? Thyroid/labs ok and derm ordered more labs

Possible connection: Pregnancy causes wild changes in your hormones. Most pregnant women notice a nice increase in hair volume, which often falls out after the pregnancy is complete. Whether your hair loss is related to the pregnancy depends on how far along you were at the time of the miscarriage. Hormone levels might be helpful. ...Read more

What could be causing me to feel like a woman hitting puberty for the first time after a miscarriage. Stopped menstrating, acne, hair loss and moody?

Need to be seen: One concern out of many that I have is of a small androgen-producing tumor somewhere. Your physician needs to consider all the possibilities before deciding that "stress" is a cause. I'm sorry for the loss of your child. ...Read more

Can laser hair removal cause permanent scarring or redness? Having it done on my face and my face is very sensitive

Can laser hair removal cause permanent scarring or redness? Having it done on my face and my face is very sensitive

Yes, if done wrong.: If your skin color is dark, you will need a professional evaluation to determine the correct type of laser to use, and the proper settings. If you have concern regarding permanent damage, I would avoid "hair removal mills". Get more than one consultation to be certain you trust your provider. ...Read more

I'm a 21 year old female who grows hair on my chin and upper lip any cause of that? Is hair laser removal the best thing to do?

I'm a 21 year old female who grows hair on my chin and upper lip any cause of that? Is hair laser removal the best thing to do?

Good treatment: For most women, unwanted hair growth is a hereditary trait. Less commonly, it is a result of abnormally elevated male hormone. Laser hair removal is a good choice for either situation; however, if male hormone is elevated, this needs to be addressed by a physician as well. Best wishes! ...Read more

Does laser or ipl hair removal cause sunken skin marks, if the treatment was done many times? If it does and I stop the treatment will they dissapear?

Could hair removal laser treatment cause cancer?

Could hair removal laser treatment cause cancer?

No: I'm sorry someone troubled you by suggesting this. Despite the daily foolishness that you read in the "pop" media, the things that really and truly cause cancer are either things that mutate genes (light beams won't do this) or that cause ongoing massive cell turnover (again, lasers won't do this.) decisions about body hair are extremely personal; if you know what you want, go for it. ...Read more
